Wouldn’t you like to consolidate legacy hierarchical architectures based on north/south designs with oversubscription bottlenecks into a flat, east/west architecture to increase data throughput and reduce latency with only a single hop within large domains of virtual machines or compute modules?
The HPE Synergy 40Gb F8 Switch Module master module, based on composable fabric is designed for Composable Infrastructure. Its disaggregated, rack-scale design uses a master/satellite architecture to consolidate data center network connections, reduce hardware and scale network bandwidth across multiple Synergy frames. This master module, contains managed switch networking capabilities that extend connectivity to satellite frames through Synergy Interconnect Link Modules that decreases top of rack switch needs and substantially reduces cost. The reduction in components also simplifies fabric management while consuming fewer ports at the data center aggregation layer.
Are you looking to improve the operational velocity of your workloads with next-generation high-performance Fibre Channel (FC) SAN infrastructure? The Brocade 32Gb Fibre Channel SAN Switch Module for HPE Synergy represents a composable and integrated Fibre Channel interconnect module with Gen6 technology that simplifies integration of the HPE Synergy blade chassis into a Storage Area Network (SAN). It provides breakthrough application performance, operational stability, and simplified manageability to meet the stringent business requirements with 32 Gb FC technology for HPE’s Composable Infrastructure. It is ideal for enterprises planning to deploy 32 Gb FC to meet growing bandwidth demands of applications utilizing all-flash storage arrays (AFA) and for customers looking to deploy scalable private cloud storage networks using HPE Synergy. It provides simplified manageability utilizing the Advanced Web Tools for fabric set-up and ongoing maintenance.
Are you looking for a higher performance embedded Fibre Channel switch module option for your HPE Synergy Frame?
The Brocade 16 Gb Fibre Channel SAN Switch Module for HPE Synergy represents an easy to manage high performance and scalable Fibre Channel switch module with 16 Gb FC technology. It hot-plugs into the back of the HPE Synergy Frame and its integrated design frees up rack space, enables shared power and cooling, and reduces cabling resulting in significant infrastructure savings. The Power Pack+ SAN management software option enables you to manage data flow to maintain optimized performance. Enhanced trunking support with external switches provides higher bandwidth to enable demanding applications and high density server virtualization. 12 or up to 24 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables customers to 'pay as they grow'. The Brocade 16 Gb Switch module saves space, costs and simplifies SAN management.
Does limited network bandwidth create a performance bottleneck in your hybrid IT environment?
The Mellanox SH2200 Switch Module for HPE Synergy delivers high-performance, high-speed, low latency 25/50GbE connectivity to each of the Synergy compute nodes, and 40/100GbE to upstream network switches. The module delivers up to 2.8 Tbps switching capacity and 8.4 BPPS throughput for the most demanding data center applications. It offers advanced and comprehensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature sets, as well as hardware-based network virtualization support. Network reliability is improved with resilient fabric connectivity to upstream switches using Multi-module LAG (MLAG) technology to reduce single points of failure.
